I stayed at Mr & Mrs Madugalle's home in August 2011. It was the most interesting, homely and memorable place we stayed in during my 4 week tour around the beautiful country.
Kumari Madugalle and her husband looked after me fantastically well. I stayed for 3 nights. Mr and Mrs Madugalle picked us up from the bus station, made us lunch upon arrival at their beautiful house in a convenient location in the city.
The room was a good size, mosquito proof, and clean.
Each night they cooked the most amazing traditional Sri Lankan food for me. I could have what we wanted and they even got in beer for me to relax with. During and after dinner, I talked with the Madugalle's. This allowed me a perfect insight into Sri Lankan life and is an experience I remember fondly and will not forget.
If you're looking for a real Sri Lankan experience with homely hospitality, I would certainly recommend a stay with Mr and Mrs Madugalle.
